Thursday, 15 August 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Simply Red have announced a new album.

‘Blue Eyed Soul’, the group’s first record since 2015’s ‘Big Love’, is due for release on November 8. Frontman Mick Hucknall said of the release:

"At this stage of my career, I could do one of those dark reflective albums looking back on my life and all that kind of stuff that people tend to do at a certain age. But I thought sod that! I wanted to make something punchy. I want to have a good time.”

The news arrives with lead single Thinking Of You, a funky, disco-infused number full of brass instruments and danceable grooves.

Simply Red will play BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park on September 15.

‘Blue Eyed Soul’ tracklist:

  1. Thinking of You
  2. Sweet Child
  3. Complete Love
  4. Take a Good Look
  5. Ring That Bell
  6. BadBootz
  7. Don’t Do Down
  8. Riding on a Train
  9. Chula
  10. Tonight
